How to survive the flight to El Chalten?
No matter where you’re coming from, flying can be a pleasant experience if you’ve planned ahead. We’ve put together a list of handy tips and tricks that will get your El Chalten vacation started on the right note.What to pack in your hand luggage:

  • First of all, put in your passport, travel docs, cash and medications. Next, you’ll want some entertainment to help pass the time. A thrilling novel and a tablet filled with your favorite movies are always good options. If you plan to take a quick snooze, a comfy neck pillow and a pair of earplugs will also be useful. Finally, leave some space for a toothbrush and some facial wipes to ensure you hop off the plane looking and feeling fresh.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • While the list of banned items differs between airlines, the general rule of thumb is nothing flammable, sharp or explosive. This includes things like tools, metal cutlery, aerosol cans and flares. Sporting equipment like bows and arrows, and items that could injure passengers, such as pepper spray and firearms, won’t be allowed on board either.

What to wear on a flight:

  • The answer to a comfortable flight often lies in your clothing choices. Prepare for changes in temperature by bringing layers. That way you’ll stay nice and warm if the cabin gets too cold. Shoes like sandals and heels are best left for other occasions. Instead, opt for flat, closed-toed footwear like sneakers. Your feet will appreciate it.
  • Unfortunately, a risk of flying long-haul is developing deep vein thrombosis (DVT), a blood clot condition caused by lengthy periods of inactivity. To prevent this from happening, make the most of every opportunity to stretch your legs and walk around the cabin. Compression socks and tights are another great idea to help reduce this risk.

How to get through airport security fast when flying to El Chalten?
The secret is to be prepared before you arrive at airport security. That way, you’ll be hopping onto that plane to El Chalten in no time flat. Follow these helpful tips and get your trip off to a great start:

  • Be sure to have your passport and travel documents handy. They’re the first things you’ll be asked for by security.
  • After that, both you and your hand luggage must be X-rayed. To speed things up, take off anything that is likely to trigger the alarm. Items such as your coat, belt and headphones need to go through the machine.
  • Your electronic devices like phones and laptops will also have to go on a tray to be scanned. Don’t worry, you’ll be back online before you know it.
  • Can’t travel without your favorite perfume or cologne? No problem. As long as the volume is no greater than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and it’s stored in a zip-close bag, it’s fine to bring with you in your carry-on bag.
  • The right choice of footwear can save you several valuable minutes. Boots and heavy shoes are often required to be removed and separately scanned. Slip-on shoes are usually not.
  • Sharp items are prohibited in the cabin. They’ll be seized at security, so pack them in your checked bags.
